Good idea, use the spark plug terminal nut...
But if you want to get fancy, and have the time and access to a small
hobby metal lathe, take a small equipment rack handle, those nice
polished chrome ones you find at just about any hamfest, cut the two
ends off at the bend with a hack saw, place the ends in a lathe and
clean up the cuts. I have the handle, no lathe but thinking about trying
a pipe cutter to do the task. I think this will work...

>>Secondly, you are missing the "pins" that attach through the bottom
lip of
the front door held in place by 6-32 screws. Those pins must be
fabricated.
(ANYBODY KNOW OF A SOURCE?)  They are nothing more than a 6-32 nut that
has
had its outer flat faces turned off so that you are left with
essentially a
cylinder with its inside tapped for a 6-32 screw.
===================================


Use a threaded terminal nut from an older style spark plug along with a
8-32
fastener.
